Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that they have reached an agreement to sell Vincent Janssen.

The Dutch striker had just twelve months to run on his contract in North London and will make the switch to Mexican side C.F. Monterrey.

Janssen struggled to adapt to life at Spurs having managed to only score six goals in made 42 appearances for the club following his £17 million move from AZ Alkmaar in 2016 (BBC).

The 25-year-old  was loaned to Fenerbahce for the 2017/18 season but struggled with injury, before returning to north London season and made just three substitute appearances after coming back into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans towards the end of the campaign.

It is unclear at this stage how much money Spurs will earn from the sale of Janssen, however getting off the wage bill will certainly help with Mauricio Pochettino’s plans to spend ahead of the transfer window closing.

Janssen was left out of Tottenham’s pre-season tour of the Far East to explore transfer opportunities and his future will now lie in Mexico.
